I am a tax accountant who was solicited by one of these "free lunch" promoters to provide tax services to her clientele. I was invited to attend a "free lunch" and took her up on the offer. In the chatter over dinner (after the presentation) one of the others there asked me what I thought. My response was:
"Think of your money as irreplaceable at this stage in your life. If you lose it, it's gone forever. Therefore, you should treat your money like you would treat your very pretty teenage daughter - whenever it's going out of your sight you want to know who it's going with, what it's going to be doing and when it's coming home."
After the session I advised the Free Lunch provider of some misrepresentations she made pertaining to the tax treatment of the investments she was touting.
I was not selected to do her client's taxes and have never heard from her again. I guess honesty and candor is not part of the sales pitch.
BTW, in my practice I do not sell any insurance, investments or any other stuff that is sold in these Free Lunch seminars. Taxes, Accounting and related services is all I have to sell.
